A Fine Compilation of Hardy's Early Years!
Morten Vindberg | Denmark | 12/13/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Though this is obviously a "cheapo" release with very sparse information about the tracks and the artist, it is actually a pretty well compiled CD of some of Hardy's best early recordings.
Containing most her of biggest hits like "Ce Petite Coeur", "Tous les Garcons et les Filles", "La Maison ou Jái Grandi" and her only British top 20 hit-single "All Over the World", the CD gives a fine introduction to the most melodic and catchy side of Hardy.
A few harder to find tracks have also been included, among those English versions of some of her biggest hits in France.
For those who are not familar with Hardy's Vogue recordings or who just like intelligent 1960's pop, this CD is highly recommended.
If you want more of the same there is double CD called "The Vogue Years" covering her 1962-67 period brilliantly."
Francoise Hardy Revisited
Richard R. Allen | Moncks Corner, SC USA | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"In the early 60's I was introduced to Hardy's music while attached to the U.S.S. Enterprise CVA(N)65 by a fellow shipmate. We enjoyed her style and then life took over. Some forty years passed and I thought of her lovely voice. I purchased three of her CD's and her music still is enjoyed. The three CD's I purchased take her early years and one of the three takes her through the 60's to the 2000's. This CD and any other one might wish to purchase is worth every dollar. One other note before the final period, "You don't have to speak french to enjoy this melodious French songstress. (On this particular CD she does some in English.......)"
Pleasant 60s French pop

"Ah these are the sort of songs you'll probably hear at some holiday hotel in France. You can't help but hum along to the tune because you wouldn't really know what the lyrics are. At least that's the feeling I get from them. But seriously, these songs are beautiful in there simplicity and while 22 songs might stretch some people's patience - they are all welcome additions. I don't want to seem like a biased fan because this is the only CD I have of Francoise Hardy but I would be interested in getting some of her records. I just a need a few more records before I get a good opinion. This, as it is, is a good start for anyone interested in French pop from the 60s. Only thing I would have wished for is that they didn't include English versions of songs that were sung here in French. Sure they're still nice but I prefer the sensuality of the French language"
